Sto-Rox quarterback commits to Penn State

Written by: on Wednesday, January 21st, 2009

Paul Jones, quarterback for Sto-Rox High School, gave a verbal commitment to play football for Penn State over the weekend, according to Mike White of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

 

Jones’ commitment came just a couple of months after he completed a solid junior season, one in which he led the Vikings to the WPIAL playoffs and a three-way tie for the Century Conference championship.

 

Jones threw for 2,038 yards and 24 touchdowns in 2008.  That followed up an impressive 2007 sophomore campaign in which he threw for 1,850 yards and 20 touchdowns. 

 

His touchdown-to-interception ratio in 2007 was an impressive 6.67 to 1, and drew some much-deserved attention.  The only sophomore with a comparable touchdown-to-interception ratio in 2007 was Lancaster Catholic’s left-handed blue chip quarterback Kyle Smith, who has visited Notre Dame and Michigan.

 

Jones is just 12 yards shy of becoming the latest 4,000 yard passer in WPIAL history.  There have been 24 quarterbacks in WPIAL history to reach 4,000 career passing yards, with Penn Hills’ Tom Fulton surpassing the mark this past season.

 

If Jones throws for 1,944 yards this season (the average of his first two seasons put together), he’d finish with the fifth-best career total in WPIAL history.

 

Jones currently sits 2,853 yards shy of tying the WPIAL career passing record, set by Sto-Rox’ Adam DeMichele, who is currently attending Temple.

 

Jones cannot sign a letter of intent with Penn State until February 2010.
